Baby news! and a Vintage baby pattern give-away

Project Design Team Wednesday: Clothes Peg Bag

30 May 2012


  For years we lived in a Metropolitan city whereby clothes lines of any kind were strictly forbidden.  When we moved to wine country, one of the first things I asked... "can we have a clothes line?"  It would have been a deal breaker if the answer had been NO.    I have a clothes line lol.    SEW, I love clothes PEG bags, I have never found one I liked, all of them just a bit dowdy for me... I have made many of these in a slew of diff't colours, each year, I have a FAV.  THIS YEAR--- IT WILL ... ...read more

Ranch Quilt

29 May 2012

This photo cracks me up.  "Chip, The Wonder horse" is holding perfectly still while it appears (almost) that a quilt is floating above him(or her).   "Blueberry, the Super Dog" is sightly underneath the horse and gives a quick pause to look at the camera. How long it took to create this photo I don't know but I love it and I love the quilt.  The piecing and quilting are beautiful and with the added words this is a perfect gift for any cowboy in your life.

 Shelly Pagliai (Polly-Eye) from Prairie Moon Quilts designed this quilt.  Visit Cutting ... ...read more

A day to remember

28 May 2012

I love memorial day for so many reasons. It is a beautiful thing to have a day to remember our loved ones and to remember the men and women who have made great sacrifices for this country. Many have made the ultimate sacrifice.  On this special day we thank all persons who serve and have served in the United Forces of the United States of America.

....more photos from Quilt Market. Our Chevron prints were featured on the front of our booth.  How about a pop of color...all the chevron colors work well together in the quilt featured below designed by Nellie's Needles.

We had a fantastic time at Quilt Market and appreciate everyone who stopped by.... I finally have a moment to share a few pictures of our booth! I tried something new and took photos from my i pad...I think I will use my regular camera next time, but I hope you enjoy.

16 May 2012


Hi, I'm Lindsay from The Cottage Mama and I'm thrilled to be back with you again today sharing my most recent design team project.  Deciding which fabric line to use for this tutorial was so darn difficult as I wanted to use just about all of the new lines that were coming out.  So I decided to post the lines I was considering on The Cottage Mama Facebook Fan Page and let the fans vote for their favorite.  It was a pretty close call, but we finally settled on 'Dress Up Days'.  I think this line is absolutely ... ...read more
